week to schedule a code enforcement hearing. >> i was thinking of something a little bit before that, abatement appeal board. for example this morning's case when the first nov was issued one 1 year and it took 3 years before it went to director's hearing. before it comes to us, it has to go to director's hearing. part of that, kind of like this view of how long does it take, how many nov's are held for a year, 2 years, before it even gets to direct hearing? >> we'll try to get those statistics for you. a lot of these cases as you well know, once it goes to planning, it can be years in the process. a lot of nov will be complied in
within 15-60 days. violations can take 3 years. we are well aware of that. it's up to code enforcement. they review all the notices of violations that are up in code enforcement. they are picking up the notices of violation that they feel should come up to directors hearing. that's how they prioritize it. they look at them and see which one is the most pertinent to bring up to a hearing. anyone want to comment on that? >> when presenting numbers, it's a huge challenge to try and take any particular criteria, how do you present it because would it take for instance the director's hearing there. those numbers reflect four hearings a month,
particular exact addresses that appear on each of those 4 days for that month. but, even within those numbers, you take a particular case at the start of the month, it would show up in the first director hearing for that month as scheduled, but if it was continued for 3 weeks and a month, that same case would show up at the end of the month as a continued case and it might finish up with an order of abatement. so whenever you look at the numbers, like you kind of have to get your head around that the numbers, you are not looking at the same address each time. in some cases you are looking at a case that came onto the system over a period of the month. it could be, get
a first notice of violation and by the end of the month, a permit is issued and signed off and closed. in another situation you can have a particular case, a new complaint opened at the start of the month, it might get a first and second notice because it was a life safety issue and it's up to a code enforcement for hearing. the challenge every time is, you know, are you looking at fixed numbers on a particular day, are you looking at fixed addresses. so there is always this big struggle. like the numbers you gave earlier, it gave a large number over 10-year period. so, how can we best present numbers that kind of makes sense to you, that's
the big challenge. >> i guess what i'm looking for is movement. so to me, it's possible especially if we kick something to planning that it's on them. i think the frustrations that i have heard from both tenants who issue complaints and landlords is they should know where is the movement? so if it comes to us, if we issue an nov, then i feel like we need to move on it whether it's movement towards resolution or movement up further to, you know, to director's hearing or whatever. because that's been kind of the frustration from whether it's a building owner with violations or whether it's a tenant who complained and then our housing division issued a violation. is that they didn't get the sense
that there is movement. so sometimes there is not just the time, but as long as they feel it's moving, then, it's less of a mystery or stress about it. >> two things that have happened in that front over the last few months. dan has instructed that we assign one inspector in full time and code enforcements cleaning up the abatement language for a while and maybe in a position to close the case. but it brought us the sign -- we want to spend full time doing that and over the last few months where the abatement was issued and the case could have been closed but we weren't aware because it wasn't brought to our attention. the other thing that has happened is our staff has
been increased in code enforcement. the number of guidance dealing with complaints in the third floor have gone from 1-2. what's happening now is cases that are getting a second order have come to us quicker. we get a staff received for healing. over the next few months when this report continues, you are going to see cases going from first to second quicker, going to hearings quicker and issued quicker and having the $52 fear where property owners when they realize they are going to pay an on going fee every month, they are going to resolve their cases quicker. cases go from start to finish at a quicker cycle. i think tenant direction has initiated a lot of these and you are going to see a shorter cycle from beginning to
end. >> it kind of talks back to where the commissioner lead the data because i'm with you, now that we have this data, we might be able to see that movement that we are talking about. >> of course we have old cases. they are just like the cases you heard this morning. they are very difficult. you have one owner and you have a tenant, they don't have access, there is eviction and they might have to do this work, there is death in the family, there is sickness and a lot of problems we have to deal with all the time. we use our direction is. a -- discretion. we get compliant but it takes time. when they have hardship involved we want to work with them. we don't just want to crucify them. >> we are going to have to be smarter in how we approach these nov's and start
categorizing them as we understand them as those types of situations where you can't move them period. i think this is where this is going. the conversation is going to continue. thank you deputy director for bringing that and acting director for putting that together. we look forward to seeing that on a regular basis. >> we look forward to putting that in the data that you need. >> thank you. >> any public comment on items or the director's report 12 a through 12 b? seeing none, item 13, commissioner questions and matters. at this time commissioners may make inquire easy to staff regarding documents, policies and practices and procedures which are of interest. >> mr. chairman, i wonder if there is any particular celebration of miss levine's
leaving us and if we'll be invited to the celebration? >> i will let you all know. >> you are mind reading today. >> good morning, i'm gail rebels. i'm the acting financing manager. you will get an invitation. there is an e-mail going out today. >> item 13 b future meetings and agendas. at this time the commission may discuss to set action on a meeting and decide to place items on the agenda of those meetings. as was mentioned earlier, our next regular meeting is on september 18th. however we are having
special meetings on september 5, 9:00 a.m.. >> i just want to reinforce all of our commissioners will be available on those dates oovment one of >> one of the dates, our commissioner cannot make the 10th. >> do we have the hours set? >> yes. we have the room basically for up to 3 hours. but we are assuming the meeting will take about 2. >> it starts at 9? >> the september 5th is 9:00 a.m. and september 10th, 1:00 p.m.. >> we are still working out the details on the location. >> the location is in this room. >> we'll open the meeting there.
